FO: Gamer Gloves
It's hard to keep my son's room warm in the winter, so he requested a pair of fingerless gloves to keep his hands warm while he plays video games. The pattern is Knucks from Knitty.com. The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash. Mods are on my Ravelry page: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Slim/knucks

A very quick knit, and easy glove construction.

They look awesome with the argyle! Did you strand the pattern or use intarsia and seam?

I stranded them -- I hate seaming! But the floats made the gloves a little bit tight in the hand the first time I knit them, so I frogged and went up a needle size. That's probably why the wrist was way too big and I had to add some decreases for wrist shaping.
